The latest report by Reports and Data states that the global alkyl amines market was valued at USD 6,328.59 Million in 2021 and is projected to achieve a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.9% during the forecast period.

Due to the increasing demand for packaged food products and raw food items, farmers are focusing on reducing crop production time by using excessive amounts of fertilizers and pesticides. Governments worldwide are making significant efforts to modernize agriculture by providing infrastructure, subsidies, and access to foreign markets.

Consequently, there is a high usage of fertilizers and pesticides to enhance crop yields, which drives the demand for alkyl amine derivatives used in chemical production. Alkyl amines are essential in the manufacturing of pesticides such as Fenvalerate, Butachlor, Dichlorvos (DDVP), Cypermethrin, Monocrotophos, Fonaphos, Phosphamidon, and Alphamethrin. The increasing global population and the resulting demand for agricultural products are expected to fuel revenue growth in the market.

Key highlights from the report include the type-based segments of the alkyl amines market, such as Methylamines, Ethylamines, Butylamines & Isobutylamines, Propylamines & Isopropylamines, Amylamines, Cyclohexylamines, and Others. In 2020, the category selling amylamines held the largest revenue share, primarily due to its use in the production of monoamylamine (MAA) for applications such as synthesizing boramides, neutralized fatty acids, and triazines.
